Our immersive community supports students’ commitment to living in language—in the classroom, in the dorms and everywhere in between.
If you’ve read about our Language Pledge® by now, you are likely feeling that “staying in language” 100% of every minute of every day is probably a daunting task. It’s certainly a challenge, but not one that you have to do alone. The first week or so is a combination of exciting, frustrating, awkward, annoying, exhilarating, encompassing…and yes, challenging.
But the Academy community is one that fosters and supports inclusivity, respect for others, multiculturalism, integrity, personal responsibility and the idea that being resilient when faced with a challenge is an opportunity to grow.
And let’s not forget the fun! The academic and residential staff is fully committed to creating an experience that is as memorable and enjoyable as it is challenging and rewarding. It’s a team effort. And we do it all together.
